NFL DFS Picks Week 9: Best sleepers, value players for DraftKings, FanDuel daily fantasy football lineups

  NFL DFS Picks Week 9: Best sleepers, value players for DraftKings, FanDuel daily fantasy football lineups NFL DFS Sloan Piva breaks down the top values and sleeper picks for your Week 9 DraftKings and FanDuel lineups. Get strategy advice and tips to help you cash in your daily fantasy football contests.If you regularly play DFS or you just like to find an edge or angle with all your football-related bets, this column will be up your alley all season. Each week, we compile a list of sleepers and/or dark horse picks to help you win some cold, hard cash on the two most popular daily fantasy sites. The more value players you add, the more money you’ll have left for proven weekly studs at other roster spots.

We're back to normalcy with bye weeks, as just two teams are on bye in Week 11. That said, we'll have to find sleepers to replace Broncos and Rams, injured stars, and players with bad matchups. We're here to help you identify under-the-radar values specific to this week. Whether it's with players on your roster or those sitting on the waiver wire, there are always guys with sneaky upside ready to enter your lineups. Jamal Agnew is the type of player on the start 'em, sit 'em bubble thanks to a usage increase, while AJ Dillon has been stashed on benches all year long but ready to break out in a big way. For those reasons, we like their chances enough to put them on our Week 11 fantasy sleeper list.

Updated Fantasy Football Superflex Rankings 2021: Top 200 for standard leagues

  Updated Fantasy Football Superflex Rankings 2021: Top 200 for standard leagues Whether you play in dedicated two-QB leagues or simply superflex formats, these are the fantasy football rankings for you. See how much the value of quarterbacks, even the sleepers and backups, is inflated when everyone is gunning for two good ones.Even high-upside backups, like Teddy Bridgewater, Mac Jones, and Trey Lance are going to be drafted, so you can imagine how that drives up the value of the bona fide studs. Patrick Mahomes is universally understood to be the 1.1 across all superflex and two-QB formats. It can be a weird adjustment to change your way of thinking about the quarterback position, but it's just something you have to prepare for.

WEEK 11 FANTASY: Busts | Start 'em, sit 'em

It's worth noting that any of our selections could bust this week, but so could bonafide studs. We're taking some chances here, as we don't want to say anyone too obvious. A list of easy choices wouldn't do anyone any good. You aren't going to start the guys below over consistent, proven producers, but you're probably not searching for fantasy sleepers if your lineup is set. However, even if that's the case, our sleepers list can help you find value in DFS contests, as the prices of these players should be affordable.

Our Week 10 fantasy sleepers contained the worst results we've ever had at one position. Matt Ryan and Carson Wentz completely stunk it up despite great matchups. At RB, Mark Ingram had success, while Kenyan Drake fell flat. We also picked Myles Gaskin, who might not have underperformed had an offensive lineman not stolen a screen pass intended for Gaskin near the goal line. At tight end, Tyler Conklin came up huge, but Pat Freiermuth and Noah Fant were merely average. And lastly, Rashod Bateman has a nice day, while Jerry Jeudy and DeSean Jackson did next to nothing.

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Watchlist for Week 12: Streaming targets, free agent sleepers include Mac Jones, Jeff Wilson Jr., Sterling Shepard

  Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Watchlist for Week 12: Streaming targets, free agent sleepers include Mac Jones, Jeff Wilson Jr., Sterling Shepard Now's the time for owners to stay ahead on the fantasy football waiver wire and scout potential free agent pickups. Prior to Weeks 11 and 12, it could be smart to add guys like Mac Jones, Jeff Wilson Jr., and Sterling Shepard as streaming options or lotto-ticket stashes.We're not only looking for one-week solutions in our Week 12 waiver wire watchlist but also sneaky value for late in the season. The waiver wire might be getting thin, but as injuries mount and bye weeks remove your fantasy studs from action, we must prepare for all scenarios. Again, only two teams are off the table in Week 12, but other factors will inevitably leave you scrambling for alternate options.

All in all, it wasn't our best week, but we'll continue searching for sneaky value on the start-or-sit bubble and promise not to simply name must-start options.

Week 11 Fantasy Sleepers: Running backs

D'Onta Foreman, Titans vs. Texans (Jackson Sparks). It appears Foreman is the most attractive fantasy asset in the Tennessee backfield, and he has a lot more juice than Adrian Peterson. Shocking, we know. He'll take on the team that drafted him this week, and the Texans are a bottom-10 unit against fantasy RBs. The Titans have won without Derrick Henry (foot), but the rushing attack has been mediocre. This feels like a get-right game for the running game, and Foreman should take advantage.

Myles Gaskin, Dolphins @ Jets (Vinnie Iyer). He’s not the most exciting play, but he’s a lot easier to trust on the road than anything in Miami's passing game.

AJ Dillon, Packers @ Vikings (Matt Lutovsky). Dillon isn’t just a "must-start" -- he’s a player who should be started over almost all RBs this week. Not only does he figure to get 20-plus touches like last week (and in Week 16 of 2020 when Aaron Jones was out), but he could easily get over 100 total yards and multiple TDs -- like he did last week and in Week 16 of 2020.

Fantasy Football QB Tiers 2021: Quarterback rankings, draft strategy

  Fantasy Football QB Tiers 2021: Quarterback rankings, draft strategy When to draft a quarterback is one of the biggest preseason questions in fantasy football every year. We break down our 2021 QB rankings into tiers and highlight different draft strategies for each, whether you want a stud or a sleeper.To clarify, a QB run is when someone drafts a QB and others in your draft quickly follow suit, fearing they will miss out on a "good" option at the position if they don't join in.

  Updated 2021 Fantasy Football Rankings: Top 200 Cheat Sheet While Kelce may very well be the best TE in the league it doesn’t make sense for fantasy managers to draft him in the first round.

Week 11 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Quarterbacks

Mac Jones, Patriots @ Falcons (Sparks). In the past two weeks, Jones completed 75 percent of his passes and posted four touchdowns to one interception. Atlanta is a bottom-five team against fantasy QBs, so while Jones is hot, this is a good time to play him on Thursday night. He doesn't have the rushing upside we all covet in fantasy, but he can get it done with his arm in this one.

Justin Fields, Bears vs. Ravens (Iyer). Fields should come back stronger and more confident after the bye and do damage with volume against an overrated pass defense.

Daniel Jones, Giants @ Buccaneers (Lutovsky). Jones hasn’t done much over the past several weeks, but he should have almost all of his weapons healthy after a bye. The Bucs have tightened up on pass defense, but they’ve had trouble with mobile QBs this year (at least 38 rushing yards allowed to Justin Fields, Jalen Hurts, and even Jameis Winston) and are clearly still vulnerable in the secondary due to injuries. It wouldn’t be a shock to see Jones post 250 passing yards, 40 rushing yards, and multiple TDs.

Updated Fantasy Football TE PPR Rankings 2021: Best tight ends to draft, sleepers to know

  Updated Fantasy Football TE PPR Rankings 2021: Best tight ends to draft, sleepers to know If a tight end gets a lot of targets, he's going to be valuable in both standard and point-per-reception formats, but our 2021 fantasy TE PPR rankings feature more potential sleepers when you factor in catches. See the whole list before finalizing your draft strategy.The guys at the top consist of Travis Kelce, Darren Waller, and George Kittle. Waller may even have a rare chance to challenge Kelce as the TE1 thanks to equal volume (both had 145 targets last year). T.J. Hockenson and Kyle Pitts, who see a rise in rankings compared to our standard rankings, have a chance to join them as tight ends who will finish first or second on their teams in targets.

WEEK 11 DFS: Best stacks | Best values | Lineup Builder

Week 11 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Wide receivers

Brandon Aiyuk, 49ers @ Jaguars (Sparks). After being in the doghouse early in the season, Aiyuk is now running a ton of routes and has been targeted 19 times in the past three weeks. Jacksonville gives up the 10th-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers, so here's a spot for Aiyuk to have his best performance of the season. There is a risk the 49ers simply run the ball an absurd number of times, but the Jags are much weaker against the pass than the run.

Kadarius Toney, Giants @ Buccaneers (Iyer). Toney. Toney? Toney! Back in Florida, expect the Giants to finally free the first-rounder again now that he’s healthy after a bye. Tampa's depleted secondary can’t handle his unique blend of speed and quickness in garbage time.

Jamal Agnew, Jaguars vs. 49ers (Lutovsky). Agnew is coming off a zero-catch game, but he once again had five targets -- the fifth straight game in which he’s had that many. Last week, he salvaged his day with 79 rushing yards and a touchdown. He’s an explosive, versatile playmaker, and the Jags usually find some way to get him the ball, and he can produce against anyone.

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Watchlist for Week 13: Streaming targets, free agent sleepers include Daniel Jones, Tony Jones Jr., Laviska Shenault Jr.

  Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Watchlist for Week 13: Streaming targets, free agent sleepers include Daniel Jones, Tony Jones Jr., Laviska Shenault Jr. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff has a 'real shot' of starting vs. the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving in Week 12 of the 2021 NFL regular season.

Week 11 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Tight ends

Cole Kmet, Bears vs. Ravens (Sparks). You may accuse us of recency bias with this selection after Kmet had his best game of the season the last time we saw him, but the matchup with Baltimore couldn't get much better, and it looks like Justin Fields might be turning the corner as a young QB. Baltimore gives up the second-most points to fantasy TEs, but they are strong against WRs. That said, it's clear where the Ravens' defense is vulnerable, so we like Kmet to have a second consecutive productive week.

Pat Freiermuth, Steelers @ Chargers (Iyer). Don’t be discouraged by his clunker against the Lions, as the Chargers cannot cover the tight and allowed a double-score game to Tyler Conklin last week.

C.J. Uzomah, Bengals @ Raiders (Lutovsky). Uzomah has been the definition of a boom-or-bust player this year, but if there’s ever a spot for him to "boom," it’s this week. Vegas is allowing the most fantasy points per game to TEs, so Uzomah should get loose for some big gains or a TD -- or both.

Week 11 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Defense

Cleveland Browns vs. Lions (Sparks). After looking like an elite defense early in the season, Cleveland has been awful on that side of the ball, to say the least. However, this is the Lions' offense we're talking about. The passing game is non-existent, and they don't run the ball well either. There's too much talent on this defense to get exposed by Jared Goff, who is always liable to turn the ball over multiple times.

New York Jets vs. Dolphins (Iyer). Robert Saleh and his players heard the farting noise from Rex Ryan earlier in the week and will be challenged to play well and squeeze on Tua and a limited offense.

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Saints (Lutovsky). Trevor Siemian has been fairly efficient in two-plus games as a starter, turning it over just once. However, we know that’s not his M.O., and he took four sacks last week. The Eagles turned in two big D/ST performances in the past three games, and even though they have a low floor, they also have a sky-high ceiling. They’re worth a shot in a thin week for D/STs.

2021 Fantasy Football WR Sleepers: Potential wide receiver breakouts, draft steals .
Wide receiver is the deepest position in fantasy football, with potential contributors and steals available at all points in the draft. Check out our list of the top 2021 WR sleepers and breakouts primed to vastly outperform their rankings.In explosive offenses, we've seen two or three wide receivers from the same team have high finishes, like Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson last year (both top 10). Of course we want to target bonafide No. 1 receivers early in the draft, but they go quickly, and when you've already spent early draft capital at running back, quarterback, and tight end, you need to know the under-the-radar sleepers as you approach the middle and late rounds.
